think if president obama had inherited bill clinton's economy, a surplus. that wasn't the case. so i think the president needs to remind america where we were and where we have been and the accomplishments that we've made. as far as mitt romney is concerned, romney can go after president obama all he wants tonight. he's got some serious repair work to do after the 47% comment, because that was a real snapshot as to who he is. plus, his private sector experience has got a checkered past. he's an outsource iceoutsourcer. he's a guy who's gone to the bottom line who hasn't been good to middle class families. he can't put a number on how many jobs he's actually created. but we hear these testimonials more and more all the time because of the hardship the middle class has gone through because of the economic model he presented in the private sector. that is a huge target for the president tonight, and i think he'll exploit it. >> steve schmidt, from a republican perspective, looking at that plus 19 number that president obama has got on handling issue of the middle class, how does mitt ro

. when president obama tried to sell his jobs bill last year over the refusal of the republican congress, he talked about the kinds of people who would get those kinds of jobs. >> it's a bill that would put people back to work, rebuilding america. repairing our roads, repairing our bridges, repairing our schools. it would lead to jobs for concrete workers like the ones here at hilltop, jobs for construction workers and masons, carp carpenters, electricians, engineers, ironworkers. put folks back to work. >> mike rowe said part of the problem was training. >> jobs depend on opportunity and training. over and over, that's what i hear, we need more opportunity and we need better training. >> once again, there is a candidate who believes in job training, who understands we need more vocational training. >> one of the, i believe, mistakes we've made 20, 30 years ago was to start de-emphasizes vocational education. right now we've got shortages of folks in fields that need technical training, but don't necessarily require a four-year college degree. >> mr. rowe went on to make a more subtle po

's interesting. bill clinton is everywhere. melissa, i saw an e-mail out here. barack obama said after the debate he's meeting up with bill clinton again. who is the running mate, biden or clinton? >> biden is definitely the running mate. look, as the former president and as a former president two terms that the party is willing to put out there. the difference is george b. bush is a two-term president. the republican party does not have george w. bush on the trail, despite the fact that mr. romney has many bush advisers particularly in foreign policy. there's nothing like someone that held that office during good economic times and you put him on the trail. >> it's amazing you how that turn-around in this relationship. what's going through bill clinton's head? >> we can only imagine. don't fill in the blanks. >> shameless plugs. >> we have a good story today about how the problem with mitt romney is actually mitt romney and less about the campaign. >> mitt romney said it himself. >> chris christie best job with his ratings in his term. >> and for my colleague? >> of course, saturday and sunday 1

sort of bill clinton and barack obama were able to change the subject on. >> right. the subject matter is something we'll probably hear at the debate wednesday night regarding here's what president obama promised the stimulus would end up doing. president obama never specifically promised that. that came in a report right before president obama got in the presidency on january 20th, 2009. >> when all is said and done, well we say the super pacs played a major role or minor role in the presidential election? >> we may end up saying they played a relatively minor role. the president has enough money to fight back and get his message through. they can't drown him out. it could be a major role if we look at house and senate races. >> that's what we are going to be watching. r >> over at bloomberg view today, i have got a column on why the legal battles over obama care are just getting started. >> i'm going to double down on that bloomberg plug. kate anderson brower does a good report today showing it's not 47% on the dole, it's actually 96%. we had a tough time figuring out who the 4% were
and denied and questioned by all the establishment. obama pushed ahead without saying, no, this is what this campaign's about. >> absolutely. you know, there were democratic big wigs saying, don't attack bain. bill clinton had something, you know, not enthusiastic to say about it. but obama was -- kept hitting romney on the bain message. he knows what he believes. he wouldn't be thrown off course by a little bit of bickering from the peanut gallery. and those ads work. so did the auto bailout, particularly in ohio. that's an early move obama made that republicans criticized, mitt romney was against it. but it is making a huge difference in ohio's comeback. >> let me get a look at the latest poll and bring in david. a new washington post poll has president obama out front in ohio and florida. inside the numbers we see how the president has hit home with ohio voters on understanding economic problems people are having right now. obama beats romney by 31 on connecting on their problems. 51 points in florida -- actually, 15. on handling taxes, president obama beats romney by a wide margin,
. >> the metrics haven't changed much. i think bill clinton was able to say things that barack obama couldn't say. he inherited a mess and making it better. >> when we come back it kraig shirley joins us and michael duffy is here. but first here is a check on the forecast. >>> the weather story this morning has been the fog. it has been very dense around philadelphia and new york city. earlier it wasn't that good over reagan international airport. the delay so far has been limited to philadelphia northwards into the new york city airport. here is our fog advisory. all of the new york saelt and philadelphia. airport delays in newark. la guardia two hours away. those airports have those issues. it will begin to ripple across the country. after the fog lifts it will be a warm day. still a few showers in new england and maybe a stray thunderstorm. the october temperature forecast. we have big changes sweeping through the eastern half of the country. much cooler air starting today in the northwest. the exception is going to be all of the west coast. we are going to stay nice and warm. the bottom line

bill clinton got elected, but they have to have a reason. they have to have a reason. >> isn't obama's record a good reason? should not mitt romney be talking more about that record? >> he should, but he also has to couple that with why he would be different. what would he do? on the issue of debt that you just talked about, on the issue of debt, romney we saw softened his position on how big a tax cut he could give under the romney/ryan budget because they added up the numbers. you can't give a $5 trillion tax cut and do anything meaningful about the debt. as bill clinton said, they finally did the math. his original plan would have blown it up more than anything president obama could do. so you can't just attack. you have to say, this is what my opponent has done wrong. this is how i'll change it. and he has done a fair job. he could do a better job on what my opponent has done wrong, but he has to come up with this is how i'll change it. it's important. >> thanks so much. >> help me out with that cliche. send me an e mal-mail. all right. >> all right. so our favorite republican mi

that obama will win. so maybe nothing short of a clear win can be a little problematic for them. >> let's consider what some conservatives are saying. let's start with bill crystal and what he had to say about the debate. >> every liberal professor i read or her advice is to be likable. you have to take care of your likability. forget it. it's too late for that. they both did well, it was so nice to have a respectful debate. they all got along. that's over. he's got to get under president obama's skin and really clarify the choice ahead. >> so karen finney, forget about being likable. don't try to get gentlemenly compliments after the debate. just go after the present as hard as you can. >> clearly bill crystal thinks that is not a winning proposition for governor romney am i do think that romney needs to be relatable, and em pathetic which so far has been very difficult for him. he needs to not come off as i'm up here and you're the 47%, you silly people, the way he can at times. and he probably needs to deny himself the instinct, there have been times on the campaign trail where he tr
to a nuclear weapon or not? we know the answer. it's closer to a nuclear weapon. >> but one thing obama and romney could agree on, just how much they love president bill clinton now. they tried to one-up each other, in fact, in praising the former president and his, of course, the annual global initiative conference. >> if there's one thing we've learned in this election season, by the way, it is that a few words from bill clinton can do a lot of good. all i've got to do now is to wait for a couple of days for the bounce to happen. >> president clinton, thank you for your very kind introduction. although i have to admit. i really did like your speech a few weeks ago a little bit better. >>> finally we're rolling out our new senate battleground map. republicans face a steeper climb to net those four streets they need to win control of the chamber in november. yesterday afternoon as the 5:00 cut-off approached, aiken kicked off a statewide bus tour and he vowed to stay in the race. >> over a period of the last number of weeks people have asked me, are you quitting or dropping out? there a
president bill clinton, the way he explained the economy and president obama's case for how he's handling the economy really seems to have had an impact. so i think those are some factors that are really playing into this lead. >> also starting out, ohio does have a lower unemployment rate than the national average. you have to factor that in as well. we know both candidates were campaigning there pretty hard in the buckeye state. let's take a listen to some of what happened. here it is. >> i have spent a lot of time in ohio, and i don't -- i don't meet a lot of victims. i see a lot of hard working ohioans. >> i believe in america and i believe in you. i believe you're going to help me win ohio, i'll tell you that. all right. >> so the president's showing up there a lot, but he also has the better ground game in ohio, right? >> right. well, i mean, he's been in ohio for five years and, you know, i mean, he had a very strong ground game here in '08 and it never really went away. so, i mean, this is something that his team's been working on for a long time. >> okay. both campaigns have said
president clinton appearing in ads for president obama. and president obama constantly referencing him in the campaign trail. and also americans like bill clinton. if you look at the fairvelt ratings, they're higher than the first lady's. >> kristen welker traveling with the president in nevada. that's a state we're going to dig deeper into in this hour. thanks again. we jump now to our monday morning power panel. we've got political analyst and columnist karen finney, alice, and perry bacon, msnbc contributor and political editor. thanks to all three of you being here. alice, i want to start with you. as we played off the top of the hour, governor chris christie repeating those comments. kind of raising the stakes for mitt romney three times specifically with david gregory on meet the press alone. do you think that he is doing mitt romney the nominee any favors predicting that he needs to seize that moment and pull momentum out of wednesday's debates to continue? >> well, certainly it's in his best interest to seize the moment. but the truth is we all know that president obama has a -
riefbded by that of bill clinton? do you think there's an effort go undermine her as an asset to the obama campaign? >> oh, absolutely. i think the thing that's mostly appalling about it. that right. she's a huge asset. extremely popular. whatever negativity there was four years ago has been wiped away by her own astonishing handling of her role as first lady but it's one thing to undermine president obama's re-election campaign, but to do so in a way that goes at the le jij legitimacy. this issue of childhood obesity has problems for children, health costs and children as a nation. that for me is the part that's really kind of out of pounds. >> melissa harris-perry. just a reminder, you can watch melissa right here on saturday and sunday on msnbc at 10:00 a.m. >>> it was atrocious. i'm very surprised the replay official didn't overturn it. if the call is in dispute and there isn't clear evidence that it was wrong, they're supposed to let it stand. but to virtually everybody with a television set, especially with a high-def television set, there's no dispute here. it was conclusively incor
this thought the other day with the debates coming up. i can't remember a single thing that bill clinton said or did in the 1996 debates against bob dole. and i think that that is exactly what barack obama's goal is over the next few weeks. >> and you know, joe, the thing that's so fascinating is that we've ended up, because both candidates have not put forward very specific agendas, we're ending up having an election that's a referendum on bill clinton's time and george w. bush's time. and most people think back to the clinton era as being a better period of time as the bush era. so barack obama's winning that debate by proxy because he's associated himself with the policies of bill clinton and with the person of bill clinton. >> i think we've got to start thinking for real about the probability of a clinton monument on the mall. i mean, you know, who would have thunk it? >> didn't he just say that he could run in ireland, and he could also run in france. >> he could run in france because he was born in louisiana. >> that's a true statement. >> ireland's a better fit for him, though, i think
a statement saying, quote, in addition to starting new businesses, mitt romney helped build bain capital bill turning around broken companies. the problem today is that president obama hasn't been able to turn around our economy in the same way. let's bring in mark mckinnon is chris cofinus. mark, this tape comes out the same day the obama cap pain released a new ad hitting that 47% comment romney made behind closed doors. in this bain capital clip -- we don't know if it's edited or see the entire tape himself. he's talking about his company and harvesting the profits. not about creating jobs or saving jobs. mark. >> yeah. well, this is another in a series of events that don't make up for a good week or two for the romney campaign. this strikes me as an issue that's deeper and more problematic in some ways because the whole issue of bain and what bain means and the whole concept of private equity is a debate that i think should be -- that should have been had a long time ago in the campaign. i would liked to have seen the romney campaign put that issue forward rather than waiting for it to be
and louder and ever since charlotte, since conventions were done and since president obama shot out of charlotte with the convention bounds, the alarms have been ringing louder and louder by conservatives. peggy noonan, rich lowry, bill crystal, all of these folks expressing extreme concern about this candidate and where he's taking the party and where he's taking the conservative movement. so i think if things keep going the way they are going, i think you can hit that fog horn button a few more times and a few more splashes will happen. >> now, erin, we're also hearing leading republicans and saying things political reported that republicans are losing faith in romney's ability to win. one high ranking romney campaign said, a lousy candidate and republicans repeatedly call romney too rich to care. one romney donor even tells politico he's missing the normal guy gene. i mean, these are republicans and people in his campaign, erin. >> sure. but as jonathan noted, people have been making this criticism of romney all year, going back to the new hampshire primary when he said, i like t
